Within North America north of Mexico, Clematis (Ranunculaceae) consists of 30 native or introduced species which are classified into four subgenera, viz., Clematis (9 species), Atragene (L.) Torrey & Gray (2 species, Viorna A. Gray (17 species), and Viticella (Moench) Keener & Dennis, stat. nov. (2 species). In particular, the history of the names "Atragene" and "Viorna" is reviewed with special attention to the major infrageneric rank (subgenus) in Asa Gray's publications.
